Side note, just spent some solid time looking over skullcrusher's hasbro photo some more.  There seem to be actual physical differences beyond simple paint scheme.  


1. Look at the flying squirrel arms.

2. Check out the pixaliated pointer arms on the Mandrill and vice versa

3. Maaayyybbee the leapin lizard's head/frill seems a little elongated.  Hard to tell near edge

Nice catch on the squirrel arms! They have a bottom edge to them! I'm looking at mine right now, and the "wings" end at the wrist. Neat.

Double nice catch on the pointer arms on mandrill.

I see what appears to be some better definition on leapin' lizard's frill. Not sure if photograph or actual figure difference though. Judging by how much was changed, I wouldn't say it's not a difference though!

Wow, that is an amazing picture. All of those preproduction colors! It's fascinating to look through and see all the minor and major changes that were made. It's funny how "off" the different colors look, being so used to their standard ones. Black Tapir looks pretty cool.
